Theoretical Study of Iridium Complexes with Phenylpyridine Based Ligands and Phosphines
Abstract:Recently, iridium complexes with phenylpyridine based ligands and phosphines, Ir(C ∧ N)2 (PPh3 (CN), [(C ∧ N) = dfppy, dfMeppy] are reported as blue phosphorescent OLED materials. These iridium complexes have novel blue color and emit light at 441 nm to 439 nm. However, these complexes have low external quantum efficiency because they exhibit less MLCT than iridium complexes with phenylpyridine, and some other ancillary ligands. To improve quantum efficiency of iridium complexes with phenylpyridine based ligands and phosphines, a time dependent density functional theory (TDDFT) study of these phosphors was performed. Using these results, this paper discusses how the ancillary ligand influences the emission peak, as well as the metal to ligand charge transfer (MLCT) transition efficiency.
